Recently, we learned the upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake would be coming in multiple parts of some kind.
Now, we’ve learned (via Kotaku) that each of those parts would be the equivalent of an entire game. The developer issued a statement regarding their original press release:
It means instead of concluding in one entry, multiple entries are being considered in development. Each entry will have its own unique story. As a gaming experience, each entry will have the volume of content equal to a full-sized game.
Finally, we also learned that the Final Fantasy VII Remake runs on Unreal Engine 4. The news comes via a press release issued by engine creator Epic Games:
“We realize how special Final Fantasy VII is to fans, and we place our trust in Unreal Engine 4 technology and tools to help deliver this long-awaited remake, crafted for modern platforms,” producer Yoshinori Kitase said. “Working with the team at Epic and having their support throughout this process was invaluable and we’re excited to bring the product of that collaboration to long-time fans and newcomers to the series.
Epic Games Japan manager Taka Kawasaki also talked up the announcement:
“We’re humbled that Square Enix has chosen Unreal Engine 4 to recreate one of the world’s most beloved video games of all time. It is a joy to work with the talented developers behind the franchise, and this marks an unforgettable moment in Unreal Engine history.”
